Refillable Foaming Hand Soap Kit - Petal
Everyone loves foaming hand soap. However, the millions of pounds of single-use & toxic plastic waste they generate yearly is atrocious!
It is time for a big change, and we are excited to carry one of the best solutions to this problem. It's also a super easy zero waste swap that is not only good for your hands but good the Mother Earth as well.
Introducing Petal: The refillable, natural, zero-waste foaming hand soap.
This system uses a sleek aluminum bottle with a (post-consumer recycled plastics) foaming soap pump. That's ok, metal pumps aren't a thing, and this will save a lot of disposable soap bottles from ending up in the landfill.
Fill up the bottle to the filling and drop in one concentrated soap pack. Let it sit for a few seconds, give it a quick shake, and you are ready to wash!

The film on the pods is made of PVOH (polyvinyl alcohol) and is used in dishwashers and laundry detergent pods. It is non-toxic, safe, and environmentally friendly. It will dissolve completely when in contact with water and will not persist in the environment, nor contribute to microplastic pollution. More info on PVOH here.
A multi-functional emulsifier that helps water and oil mix nicely together. It also has a nice skin feeling, can act as a thickener, and has some antimicrobial activity that makes it an active ingredient in some natural deodorants. The compound is vegetable in origin, making it biodegradable & toxicologically safe.
Propylene Glycol - A plant-derived, colorless liquid that functions as a humectant (helps skin attract water) and acts as a solvent for other ingredients.
Disodium Coco-Glucoside Citrate - A mild cleansing agent blend obtained from natural and vegetable sources. Good cleansing performance and no dry after-feel.
Sodium Lauroyl Sarconsinate - A mild, biodegradable amino acid cleansing agent that is derived from fermentation. It is known for its good foam-boosting abilities while improving the mildness of the formula.
Water - H2O. But only a wee bit.
Sodium Olivoyl Glutamate - A vegetable-derived cleaning agent which utilizes the fatty acid profile of olive oil.
Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil - A plant oil from the polyphenol-rich seeds of the grape. It's a light emollient oil that makes your skin feel smooth and nice and also contains a bunch of good-for-the-skin stuff. It's a great source of antioxidants and skin-protectant vitamin E.
Natural Fragrance - Essential oils with natural ingredients such as lemongrass, citrus, and ginger.
Phenoxyethanol - A preservative used to combat bacterial growth in many cosmetics and personal care products. It's safe and gentle and derived from nature (it's found in green tea), but the commercially-used ingredient is synthetic (what's termed a 'natural identical' chemical).
As another reviewer noted, it takes a few pumps of liquidy soap before it foams up, but once it does, it is strong foam. I ordered the citrus ginger, and it is a strong scent. Pleasant and natural smelling, and no stronger than the average store-bought scent, but strong all the same. Worth noting if that is a concern for you.
I got the Petal pump with refills for foaming hand soap. I think I added a bit too much water but it still foams well. Takes a couple of runny squirts at first but then it foams nicely.
